Matt Harvey was force into action due to Jacob deGrom being pushed back because of neck stiffness. Harvey hit the second batter of the game in the head, who luckily was ok. Bryce Harper was the next batter and proceeded to give the Nationals the lead with a long 2 run homer to right center.
In the bottom of the first, Michael Conforto answered back with a solo shot to the opposite field. Curtis Granderson tied the game with a two out single in the bottom half of the fourth inning.
Jose Lobaton then hit a solo homer in the top of the fifth inning to put the Nationals up 3-2. Harvey then settled down to get through 6.
Granderson then struck again in the bottom of the sixth with a solo shot to tie the game up yet again.
The game then went to extra innings, where Jeurys Familia gave up a bases loaded walk to give the Nationals the lead. Yet another tough loss for the Mets.
